Grilled Cocktails

Grilled fruit is great for making desserts and serving alongside main dishes at barbecues, but we never thought about using it in cocktails until we spotted the trend popping up on menus at restaurants like Austin’s La Condesa. The CHOW Test Kitchen took three classic fruit-based cocktails and made them with grilled fruit for an added layer of complexity. These recipes are scaled up to make in big batches and serve a bunch of friends, so before you throw the burgers or chicken on the grates, grill a few cocktails to kick off your summertime party.
